Re: Ebay import charges

Purely speculative -- but I would imagine there is a minimum amount that they charge if it's going through the global shipping program.

The Inflight 757 is better than the Gemini. But the Inflight also costs $30 more and that’s a significant difference on $80. I expect it to be better.
